MANHATTAN – At a time when the national and local conversations on policing have become increasingly divisive, the NYPD is turning to community-building with the annual National Night Out Against Crime— this year’s festivities are scheduled for Tuesday evening at John Jay Park on the Upper East Side.

The event returns after a one-year hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic and focuses on strengthening community-police partnerships by giving Upper East Siders the opportunity to meet the officers of the 19th Precinct, whose responsibility it is to keep our neighborhood safe— and have some fun for the whole family at the same time.

From 5 pm – 8 pm Tuesday evening at John Jay Park— on East 77th Street at Cherokee Place, there will be music, giveaways, ice cream from UES, food from Schaller & Weber and Maz Mezcal, arts and crafts, raffles and activities for everyone, including pets— and it is all free!

First held in 1984, the National Night Out Against Crime brings neighbors together with police, community leaders and local businesses to build partnerships and foster safer streets.
